... in that combination anymore. I have been on Oxycontins and dont want that again. Can anyone suggest a different pain pill, I will still be on the patches, I just need a new break through medicine and don't know what I should talk to my doc about. Thanks
I was just prescribed Fentanyl patch 12mcg and Norco 10mg for extreme pain related to three knee replacement surgeries on the SAME knee over a 9 mos period. This was after using 40 - 60mg oxycodone daily for the past 9 mos. It appears to work quite well except without the Norco, the Fentanyl is not enough since the pain is horrendous. I am going in to get examined again today however I will be continuing the combination indefinitely. I asked to up the Fentanyl since my specialist wants me to use only the patch and use the Norco for breakthrough only, however I have to wait 3 wks before it can be increased, in order to give my body time to get used to it.
I also have chronic lower back pain. My doctor has me on 50mcg/hr fentanyl and 3-10mg. of oxycodone. I Change my patch every 48 hours. The patch only seems to last for about 24 hours! I need more break through medication!! How do you get a doctor to help or is there something to take the place of fentanyl and 10 mg. of oxycodone every 8 hours?
